    Can a misfit diSSent rider help me out please?

    I just bought a yakima raptor bike rack. It doesn't reach the bottom tube of my intense tracer.

    I was going to wait till the season was over to sell the tracer and build my new diSSent, but I can change those plans with no problem.

    However I want to make sure that the diSSent will fit on the rack. At this point I can still return the raptor and get something else.

    So, can someone with a diSSent (preferably size large) please measure from the ground up to the bottom tube a little bit up from the BB? Lemme know what the measurement is so I can compare to the the tracer. Your prize will be a beer if you're ever up in tahoe post-october.

    This is just eyeball measurements but...

    The bottom bracket is roughly 11" (bottom) and 13" (top) from the ground.

    When I measure 2.5" up the down tube from the outer shell of the bottom bracket, the down tube is 12.5" and 16.5" (top and bottom) from the ground.

    It's a size Large misfit diSSent.

    Hmm... Sounds like it might fit but I think I'll just spend the 30 bones and get the rack that will will fit everything to come for years. Thanks!
